Encourage Safe Teen Driving With Celebrate My Drive With Kelly Clarkson

When you speak to any teenager who is approaching the age of 15, they will tell you they cannot wait to get their license. By the time they are a sophomore in high school, many are taking driver’s ed courses or their parents are teaching them in a big empty parking lot close to home! This is an exciting time in a young adult’s life because it gives them the sense of freedom and responsibility they have been craving for years! Teen drivers make up for one of the largest numbers of drivers in the US. They also make up for the largest group of drivers to have an accident or fatality. Many of these sad statistics will occur within the first year of getting their driver’s license. In order to cut these statistics and make our young drivers a safe group, State Farm® created a program called Celebrate My Drive®.

Encourage Safe Teen Driving

The Celebrate My Drive® program was started in 2010 in an effort to encourage safe teen driving. The folks at State Farm® feel safe driving is a lifelong commitment and this is a way to start it off right. It is an opportunity for communities to get behind their young drivers and help them make safe driving choices.  Car crashes are the number one cause of death in the teen bracket in the US, it is imperative we change those numbers. By teaching teens important tips like the 2N2™ , which is keeping 2 eyes on the road and 2 hands on the wheel. If we all stick together and work with our teens for better driving habits, we’ll save lives together. To learn more about the Celebrate My Drive® program, you can watch the informative video provided on their website.

During the week of October 18-26, your community will be encouraged to make safe driving commitments on behalf of your high school. The more commitments made, the better your chances of winning a grant for your high school and maybe even a concert from Kelly Clarkson. State Farm agents will also be hosting student-focused events across North America. You can visit the Celebrate My Drive® website to see if your school is registered for the program. If not, you can fill out a form that will contact your school on your behalf, asking them to participate. Remember, when we teach our kids about safe driving, we are teaching them habits that will last them a lifetime.

One USA reader will win a $50 Visa Gift Card and a State Farm prize pack (wrist band, over the shoulder bag, sunglasses, key chain, and t-shirt (ERV $50.00)

  1. My 15 year old daughter who has her permit. Also have an 18 year old son with his license…double trouble!

  2. My almost 16 year old has just decided she is ready to try to get her license but my 13 year old is counting down the days to get hers.

  3. I don’t have teen drivers yet, but my daughter is about to turn 11, and I’d like to teach her about road safety as young as possible, so she takes it seriously when she’s old enough!

  4. My daughter just got her license last year! Yikes! She is doing a lot better though than when she first began. So there is light at the end of the tunnel! lol

  5. I don’t have a teen driver quite yet – my son is 17, but he doesn’t have his license yet (partly because we can’t afford to insure him!)

  6. My niece Lyndsey. She just turned 16. She still only has her permit though, will be a while before she is driving on her own.

  7. My teen drivers are now in their 20’s and 30’s and will be having two grandkids become teen drivers in the next 3 years.

  8. My son…although he’s officially not a teen anymore now that he’s 20…sure can’t tell from the insurance prices though!

  9. My almost 18 year old daughter just got her license last week and my 16 year old daughter got her permit Wednesday.
